I am looking to feature stores/products/companies that do something “good” – maybe they contribute to a specific cause, or it is a company that does not test on animals, or it is good for the environment, or something like that.

reasons that people come into our lives.
lives are really a story.
full of characters that come in and out of our lives for various reasons.
think some people come into our lives to help us through difficult times,
others to teach us something about ourselves, and various other reasons.
sometimes they come into our life so that we can help or teach them something.
